While we provide services to the clients insured with most insurance companies, the level of cover offered by companies to the clients differs vastly. Therefore if you have private medical insurance cover, you need to clarify with your insurance cover provider about the level of cover and the process. In most circumstances, we can invoice the companies directly, however we would require your membership number and the claim authorisation number (if applicable) before we proceed. In all circumstances, the responsibility of payment lies with the client if the insurance company or third party guarantor fails to pay us for any reason.
